The Zoo’s Genesee Trail will be featured at the Seneca Park Zoo tomorrow (Oct. 6th)!
Free with Zoo admission, this event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Zoo’s Genesee Trail, home to our bald eagles, lake sturgeon and river otters. All day, the Zoo’s docents, or volunteer educators, will be sharing the history of the Genesee River, the Iroquois people and Seneca Park with visitors. Through the use of several stations, they will highlight different animals that play a key role for the Iroquois, including the heron, hawk, deer, wolf, bear, eagle and more.
Representatives from Ganondagan will also be on grounds sharing their impressive display of Seneca Nation artifacts that show how the Seneca Nation hunted animals not just for food, but to make every day useful items. Additionally, Elaina Burns, a State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry graduate student, will share her expertise on the history of river otters in New York State during a lecture (open to the public) in the Zoo’s Conference Center. The lecture will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
See YOU at the Zoo!
